Less than a month until my craft fair at the Knights of Columbus in Pembroke! AHHHHH! Pressure is on. I have a good stash of cards, about 40 so far, but need lots more!! I am trying to make simpler cards. But even those cards take me forever sometimes.
I just loved the twine flower on this card, so I had to make more. I think I could make these all day, they are so adorable. I followed along with this week’s sketch at the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. I am looooving all these sketches. I used a small strip of Fancy Pants paper on this card, and the cloud is a matching die cut. I didn’t stitch my buttons….I guess I wanted them to be a bit more simple, but now I think I’m regretting it.
I made this baby girl card. I need a few baby cards I suppose. I paper pieced the pram, which was a$1 rubber stamp at Michael’s. And I used a SU stamp to make the Sugar and Spice panel. My stamp a ma jig came in handy for that. And if that wasn’t tedious enough, I decided to hand stitch the circle.
Now this card was pretty simple. I used the dreamy paper from Jillibean’s soup Dutch Mustard Soup and a matching journaling sprout. I wanted a wedding card, but have no wedding sentiments. So I created my own. I used a happy father’s day stamp from PTI, and taped the father’s day with masking tape, inked up the happy, then took off the masking tape right before stamping onto my card. I think it’s darling. And this was a layout from Clean & Simple Stamping.
And last a blank card. I love those big buttons and big polka dots. I’d love to make more of these, but I don’t have lots of big buttons.
And I just realized that I used my scallop punch on all these cards. I didn’t even know I liked scallops so much.
